Thanks! I look at forums as educational for the most part. You can meet good people that you keep in contact with for a long time. There are others that use public media outlets as a way to hide behind their humongous internet bawrls and just post nonsense. I am in no way saying '89F2urd was doing that at all though. I completely understood what he meant by his comment and I respect that, I didn't even think twice about it.

Its just nice to see someone be humble about their (and others) choice's when buying a new truck. Just don't get caught up in the V8 vs V6 Ecoboost war...9 outta 10 times it just leads to petty arguments and disagreements that are handled poorly by both parties and serve no real purpose other than to insult someone for their personal choice in engines. As you can see if you scroll back threw some of the older comments on this thread. I admit I myself have been guilty of getting a little petty with people in the debate, I chose the new 5.0L myself because it best suited my needs/wants, and I've come to realize that those who choose the Ecoboost did so because it best suited their needs/wants and that's totally respectable.

One of my favorite things about Ford Truck Enthusiasts is that the community is generally always very helpful. But over the past year or so the Ecoboost vs The Alternative'a battle has gotten more and more ridiculos. So I just try and stay out of it these days. My main thing is that I'm just happy that we have the choice's that we do today, and I don't want to see these choice's be taken away in the future.

I'm just glad that the F150 has engine choices that seem to fit most tastes. I don't see any other half ton truck out there doing what Ford has done.

Well said, I am a member of the other Ford truck forum and it of course it's the same over there. My motto is pretty much, "I chose what I did because it is what I wanted. I took into consideration where I am at in life and what would best suit me right now." I feel fortunate that I am now in a position to truly get what I want.

One of my biggest peeve's is the "real truck" comments. I don't tow or go off road with my truck. It isn't lifted or have a push bar. I am OK with all of that. It is a real truck, just check out the badges that say F150 on them. Same badge is on my Limited that is on the FX4 with the 4 inch lift. If I wanted all of that I would have gotten a Raptor instead of the LL and saved a couple grand. Sorry, ending my rant now.

and you, sir, possess character that would be beneficial to any learning environment. and, if you stick around, will surely make this one a better place. you said it best, plenty of nitwits on the net do what they do, and say what they say fueled by different brands of childishness that are too abundant to list.


btw, the joke's on the "its not a real truck" crowd. the same "type" of person that says that, is the same "type" that spends literally tens of thousands of dollars to drive a lifted, huge tired street queen with a ball sac swingin from the back. no thank you.

A real slow walking pwr train on the road. Regret the throttle linkage job Ford has done on it though. Dealer calls it an electronic throttle. When I tramp it down to jump out into traffic the engine wines up but no rapid acceleration. Sounds like the block is gonna blow before it starts to move out.. gotta get it looked at - 2011 f150/Platinum. 6.2 x 6sp elect shift.
